David Bosco, Assistant Professor of Politics, American University

"David Bosco's Rough Justice is one of - if not, the - most significant contributions to understanding relationships between states and the ICC in recent years. Impressively researched, accessibly composed and cogently argued, Bosco skilfully lays out a political history of the Court that not only elucidates why and how powerful states engage with the ICC but also how the Court manages its relations with the states upon which its legitimacy and effectiveness depend ... Both liberal and realist oriented scholars should read Bosco's sophisticated account of the ICC." - Mark Kersten, Journal of International Criminal Justice
